<p>A technique that is functionally equivalent to the oriented smoothing concept and reduces numerical complexity and computational costs by eliminating the smoothness requirement from the iteration process is introduced. Local affine transformations are applied to propagate uniquely computed flow vectors into homogeneous regions and along edges in a single step. The window within which the local affine transformation is performed can adapt to the local structure of the intensity pattern in accordance with the oriented smoothness concept as formulated by H. Nagel (1987).</p>
